And that's the way it is.

Well, to make it accurate the appropriate response would be "OK, the tax on that will be $0.10 and here go ahead and take the gum anyway."

Jim said...

Gum is not health care.

SCOTUS, like the electoral college, was and is a bullshit that needs to be flushed once and for all.

A handful of crusts, answering to no one, deciding the future of a nation.

The lunacy is blindingly apparent.

Getting rid of the third branch of government on your whim is lunacy, Timmy, I mean St. Revolution.

Saint Revolution said...

The judicial branch is made of exclusively of SCOTUS?!

Ann, your STUPID is showing again...

...must be that odd-shaped head of yours'...above AND below...

Hey, semen sucker:

Approval Rating For SCOTUS Justices Hits Just 44% In New Poll

"...those findings are a fresh indication that the court’s standing with the public has slipped significantly in the past quarter-century, according to surveys conducted by several polling organizations. Approval was as high as 66 percent in the late 1980s, and by 2000 approached 50 percent.

The decline in the court’s standing may stem in part from Americans’ growing distrust in recent years of major institutions in general and the government in particular. But it also could reflect a sense that the court is more political..."

HOW is SCOTUS accomplishing The Will of The People?!

Again, from Approval Rating For SCOTUS Justices Hits Just 44% In New Poll :


---just 44 percent of Americans approve of the job The Supreme Court is doing.

---approval was as high as 66 percent in the late 1980s and by 2000 approached only 50 percent.

---more than two-thirds of Americans hoped that The Supreme Court would have overturned some or all of the 2010 health care law.

---there was scant difference in The Supreme Court’s approval rating between supporters and opponents of the 2010 health care law.

---just one in eight Americans said the justices decided cases based ONLY on legal analysis (i.e., the justices illegally and unethically use personal feelings/opinions).

---60 percent agreeing with the statement that “...appointing Supreme Court justices for life is a bad thing because it gives them too much power...”.

---36 percent of Americans said they disapproved of how The Supreme Court was handling its job.

---tangentially, approval rating of Congress — 15 percent in the latest poll.

---asked about the health care case, 41 percent of those surveyed said the court should strike down the 2010 health care law in its entirety.

---only 24 percent said they hoped the court “...would keep the entire 2010 health care law in place...”.

---about two-thirds of Republicans in the recent survey said the entire 2010 health care law should be overturned.

---more than 70 percent of independents said they wanted to see some parts or all of the 2010 health care law struck down, with more of them saying they hoped to see the whole the 2010 health care law overturned.

It is not the job of SCOTUS to accomplish the will of the people. Otherwise, segregation might still exist.

It is the job of SCOTUS to be arbiters of the law as it relates to the Constitution.

In the United States, legislation is not accomplished by the will of the people (polls). It is accomplished by the representatives that the people elect, for better or worse. If the people don't like what the legislators legislate, they vote for someone else next time.

No, Jimbo.

To be accurate, it is "You will be taxed if you do NOT eat the broccoli."

Jim said...

Just frickin' learn to like broccoli and move on!

Billiam said...

I'd rather have cauliflower. Maybe with some caramelized baby carrots? Is that taxed?

Dad29 said...

According to the CJ, taxing you is no problem whatsoever.

Take your pick!!

Jim said...

Taxing you is not problem and never has been. However, as with the commerce clause, the limiting factor of the taxing power is the election process.

Bill, cauliflower and caramelized baby carrots sounds delicious. For broccoli and other greens, I like to sprinkle a little sweet rice vinegar over it. Eat well (and healthy)!

Billiam said...

I eat healthy. Sometimes.. ;-) I'll try the rice vinegar. The older I get, the more my taste buds like things I used to blanch at.

Jim said...

I hear that!

Hey, Ji(s)m 6/29/2012 7:42 PM:

It is the job, nay, responsibility, nay, DUTY of EVERY public sector employe to accomplish ONLY ONLY ONLY The Will of The People.

They work ONLY and COMPLETELY for US.

They don't like, nobody'S asking 'em to stay...GAD, nobody's asking 'em to stay.

That stink of ultra lefty liberalisim you smell is you sniffing your own communistic upper lip, Comrade.

Anonymous said...

The only stink is the slop that St. Revolution throws up on this site.

Jim said...

St. Orem: Clearly you've never taken a US History class, US Civics class, or read a book on jurisprudence since you demonstrate an amazing lack of understanding of the concepts of "checks and balances", judicial review, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution in general.

The worst "stink" is the rot of ignorance.

You are kidding me, right?!

Thank gad we have Ji(s)m throwing around Government 101 words in a ComBox posting.

He MUST be smart, Mommy.

This MUST prove James' superior insight.

Here's some more for you Jimmy:
See Jim's runs. Runs, Jim, runs...Jimmy's diarrhea of the mouth and pen.

Worth just enough effort to flush it.

And you're responding to it, St. Revolution.

Great answer, San Torem.
